この「概要」の章では、重要なコンセプトやアイデアを理解するのに役立つ、Houdini の基本情報を紹介します。はじめからすべてを理解するのは難しいでしょう。この章を参照しながら、Foundations チュートリアルを進め、知識を積み上げていってください。

3D ソフトウェアの使用経験がある方は、そこで培ったスキルを活かせます。Scene View とシェルフツールを使ってインタラクティブにショットを構築する方法を学んでから、Houdini のプロシージャルな性質を利用するためのノードやネットワークの使い方に進みます。

3D やコンピュータグラフィックスに初めて触れる方にも、 Houdini はぴったりのパッケージです。この学習教材「Foundations」は一定の基礎知識があることを前提としているため、知らない CG の概念については、調べながら読み進めることをお勧めします。Houdini を学習すると、Houdini だけでなく、3D アプリケーション一般について、内部で何がなされているかについての理解が進みます。

Houdini 19.5 用の Houdini Foundations のすべての章は PDF としてダウンロードすることも印刷書籍として購入することも可能です。この本は 224ページ、9章で構成され、Houdini への第一歩を踏み出すのに最適です。

  • expat42451 1 年, 9 ヶ月 前  | 

    Just started with Apprentice on Majaro Linux....Absolute cudos to Monica in support for the kind assistance on getting the license server issue straightened out. My creative work has been here to fore photography and I am very excited to start with Houudini. Have watched a number of the tutorials and those of you that have produced them deserve cudos as well for the excellent work you have done here. This is my first 3 D software experience and the tutorials are an excellent introduction.

    Many kind thanks for the program, the great support and the tutorials

    I like this much better than searching through YouTube to find tuts from people with varying degrees of knowledge. I just installed Houdini, so I plan on going through all the info here, then start playing.... rather than just diving in which always ends in frustration

  • skygenesis86 1 年, 8 ヶ月 前  | 

    I have a question, I am following along and got up to the point to press play but when I press play nothing happens they dont fall. Is there something that I can check?

    Where are the project files? I cannot keep up with the tutorials unless I try the exercises myself.

    thansk for you lensons ,it help me more

  • saif0316 1 年, 6 ヶ月 前  | 

    At 4:22 when I add in the second randomize, it doesn't scale like it does in yours. Am I missing something?
    Btw thank you so much!

    • saif0316 1 年, 6 ヶ月 前  | 

      I found it! I capitalized the S on pscale so it should be pscale instead of pScale.
      I'm surprised! that changing the attribute name could have that effect. That is so cool!

  • dhuiting 1 年, 5 ヶ月 前  | 

    I downloaded Houdini apprentice, but Boolean and Polyextrude are not available nodes in this version. Do I have to purchase Houdini Indie to follow along?

  • phil8 1 年, 5 ヶ月 前  | 

    Hey Robert nice job on the instructional content as always. I noticed that there is a Foundation Book that you can buy printed. Will there be a pdf or e-book version of this? Thanks!

  • eosmalta 1 年, 4 ヶ月 前  | 

    I'm new in houdini, and i'm loving the free content dor begginers. After I finish learning the basics, would anyone have any courses to recommend ? I already work in the industry as a 3D artist, but I want to be able to focus on FX.

  • sophia73583 1 年, 3 ヶ月 前  | 

    This tutorial is very helpful to get started! But I ran into an issue when adding rbdBulletSolver around 5:15. When I set display to the rbdBulletSolver node, the mesh of objects disappeared. I followed the exact steps so I'm not sure what went wrong there. Any thoughts?

    • simplychenable 11 ヶ月 前  | 

      I ran into the same 'issue'. turns out it stems from where the playhead is in the timeline. for some reason it was at frame 3 when I applied the solver. The torus will come back once you drag the playhead back to frame 1.

      hope that helps.

  • zahedmirza 1 年, 1 ヶ月 前  | 

    Hi Robert, Thank you for providing such an easy-to-follow tutorial. As a beginner, it was extremely helpful.
    Looking forward for your tutorials on motion design with Houdini and UE5.
    Once again, thank you very much.

  • Lightbox3d 1 年, 1 ヶ月 前  | 

    When I download the project files, they are ll empty...

    • rmagee 11 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

      There are files in the subfolders - you will create the main hip files in the lessons

  • Kari66 1 年 前  | 

    Hi Robert,

    regarding the first video of Houdini work space at a certain point once I added the grid I lost all the colors!!
    FYI I am using Mac.

    Thank you so much in advance for your reply.

    • rmagee 11 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

      Not sure why that happened - could you share the file in the learning forum.

  • JanMartinB 11 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

    I have a question regarding this foundation series - Does the video tutorials cover all the information that is in the "foundations book" or is there additional information in the book? How would you in that case recommend using these resources? Thank you.

    • rmagee 11 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

      The overview chapter has a lot of reference information that goes beyond these videos. For the other foundation chapters, the videos and print match up. We did both because some people like to watch videos and others like to reference the printed page. l

  • adamghering 10 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

    I cant seem to find the support files. (scene files) when I download them I get the folder structure but nothing is inside them, it says 108 megs but I cant fined anything in the folders

    • adamghering 10 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

      for example when you get to working with nodes, there is a box a sphere and a boolean, but nothing before that goes over how to navigate, or set that system up. I would like a project file to look at or at least a step by step to recreate; otherwise how will I follow along if I cant recreate or have access to the file?

      • Bradley Newman 1 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

        Agree, the Working with Nodes video is particularly difficult to follow without the file.

  • natrianvfx 10 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

    I loved this tutorial. Started yesterday with my Houdini Journey. I'm coming from Nuke so I can relate some things but it's really fun to think of all of Houdini possibilities.

  • natrianvfx 10 ヶ月 前  | 

    I've just finished with this foundations tutorial and I'm very grateful. It was a great introduction to Houdini. The only thing that I can't figure it out is that I have no color reference when using the "Soft edit radius" slider. But otherwise it has been a series of incredibly useful videos to introduce yourself to this software.

    • natrianvfx 10 ヶ月 前  | 

      Nevermind, just restarted Houdini and now it shows me the color reference using the "soft edit radius" slider. As always in life it got fixed shutting off and open it again haha!

  • mahmoudkashef 9 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

    i hope to learn this amazing app

  • calderonmateo67 9 ヶ月 前  | 

    Thank you very much for the videos, no disrespect to courses or anything but literally everyone who starts in houdini should watch them.

  • Hakobus 5 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

    This might be quite literally the worst, most confusing, "beginner introduction" tutorial I've ever tried watching. The host goes way too fast and doesn't telegraph at all what he's about to do or why or even where in the UI. I get that some people like that style of tutorial, but personally I find it tedious to have to keep pausing and rewinding a tutorial that's supposed to be about the basics of the software and meant for beginners.

    • Hakobus 5 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

      After watching a few more of the series, I guess only the "The Houdini Workspace" part of these tutorials is bad. I have no idea why someone would choose to put that one as the first, as it is as I described. The rest are much better and easier to follow, even if the host still quite often does not telegraph what he's going to do, but rather does things first and only then says what he's doing.

  • Fernando_Criativo3d 5 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

    Hi I am new to Houdini and will be very nice to have the models used in the tutorials to follow along.


    • rmagee 5 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

      All models can be found by pressing the tab key in the scene view and typing "testgeometry" Then you can choose from the various models used in this lesson.

  • Fernando_Criativo3d 5 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

    Ah...didnt know that! even the soccer ball? didnt fint it!

    • NWink07 5 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

      Yeah I don't see them all either.

  • khaledreez22 3 ヶ月 前  | 

    bro, literally the best introduction to Houdini. thank you so much, learned a lot

    • rmagee 3 ヶ月 前  | 

      Glad that you found it helpful.

  • thoresiqus 2 ヶ月 前  | 

    Honestly - it's kinda not bad, and help me started ...strated to the Earth orbit using my butthurt acceleration :D
    So many - unnecessary moves, or jumping between anything, or montage ... Like, you know, drawing an owl meme.

    Putting this aside - I gained some knowledge.

  • Bradley Newman 1 ヶ月, 1 週間 前  | 

    Where are the project files? In particular, the Working with Nodes file with the box and sphere boolean example?

  • LowJacK604 1 日, 3 時間 前  | 

    For an introduction to workspace, this is complete random nonsense.
